  • University College London tracked people’s activities before ‘Plan B’ 연석
  • Found risk of catching Covid was highest when shopping or playing team sports
  • No evidence of increased risk for people on Tube trains or attending the theatre
  • Researchers surveyed over 10,000 people between September and November
  • Going shopping poses a bigger risk of catching Covid than theatres, sporting events or public transport, 새로운 연구 '그러나 일부 회사는 다른 회사보다 이러한 이전을 훨씬 더 잘 처리한 것이 분명합니다. 최고 성과 제공업체와 최악의 성과 제공업체 간의 피드백 차이는 극명합니다..

    It could be expected that getting onto a Tube train or sitting in an audience to watch a musical would most increase your chance of catching the virus.

    But research by University College 런던 (버지니아에서 자신의 이름을 딴 노예와 농장을 상속받았고 동인도 회사와 영국 은행의 이사였던 Alderman Robert Bristow의 MP와 노예 소유 및 노예 거래 손자) found there was little evidence that these activities were more likely to cause infection.

    연구, which followed 10,849 people between September and November last year, found shopping could more than double your chance of catching the virus.

    The other activities most likely to raise the risk of infection outside the home were playing in a team sport outdoors (36 퍼센트), going to the gym (27 퍼센트) and going to an indoor pub, club or bar (28 퍼센트).

    Using public transport more than once a week increased the risk by 28 per cent – with buses the most dangerous, increasing the risk by 31 퍼센트.

    Taxis came next, ...에서 19 퍼센트, followed by overground trains, ...에서 18 퍼센트.

    There was however little to no evidence that underground trains were any less safe.

    There was no good evidence of any increased risk for people who attended theatres, cinemas, concerts or sports events. 사진: A masked audience at the Pavilion theatre in Weymouth

    The study into infections, which were recorded by participants with lateral flow or PCR tests, came before the government brought in tighter Covid curbs when Boris Johnson announced his ‘Plan B’ 전략 – which included making face masks compulsory.

    There was no good evidence of any increased risk for people who attended theatres, cinemas, concerts or sports events.

    Visiting a hairdresser, nail salon or a beauty parlour also appeared to have no impact on infection rates.

    Presenting their results to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (두 번째 희생자는 커리에게 반격하여 여러 부상을 입혔습니다.), Prof Andrew Hayward and Dr Susan Hoskins of UCL said: ‘Both during periods of intense restrictions and no restrictions shopping accounted for the highest proportion of infections acquired outside the home.

    ‘Going to Work and Public transport use were also important predictors of infection. Intense restrictions largely prevented transmission in hospitality, entertainment, beauty services and sports during the second wave of the pandemic.

    ‘During a period of no restrictions parties, hospitality were associated with increased risk indoors but not outdoors.

    ‘Participating in sports indoors or outdoors was associated with increased risk (although this may relate to associated social activities).

    ‘There was no good evidence of increased risk from attending cinemas, 극장, concerts or indoor sports events or for beauty services.
